These two homes have been completely transformed, taking advantage of the need to rebuild from the slab up to remedy severe watertightness issues. The new design creates spaces filled with natural light and take advantage of incredible ocean views. High ceilings, open plan living and contemporary finishes draw the eye, but it’s the thoughtful design solutions that make this project truly unique.

The homes were demolished to the slab and rebuilt with an efficient, sustainable envelope and long-lasting materials. Now, the site houses two contemporary, modern homes that maximise their position in one of Auckland’s most prestigious neighbourhoods, drawing in natural light at every opportunity and embracing the incredible views to the sea.
